Problem with using _IsPressed()

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

I've written a script using following part is inserted.

Func _CallFolder()
; ....
Local $_hDLL = DllOpen("user32.dll")
; ....
; ....
While 1
    ; ....
    ; ....
    If _IsPressed("1b",$_hDLL) then _Terminate($_hDll,$_iPID,$_hGUI)
; ....
; ....

Func _Terminate($_para1, $_para2, $_para3)

The script is working right. But on typing "ESC" not only my script is closing all other open programs using "ESC" for termination too going closed.
I've no idea why that happens.

Maybe one of the "profis" :) can help me on it.

Please ecxuse my bad English but I'm a German trying his best.

Thank you and best regards, HalleMike

Thank you VIP. I hired the function HorKeySet() and fired the function _IsPressed() in my script and all things are fine. The script works how I want.
But nevertheless I would like to know why I got this problem with _IsPressed(). I don't understand how it comes to "repeating after pressing a key".
There're no words about it in the help explanation.

Maybe you know it and have a minute to write it down here.

Thanks again, HalleMike

Oh yes there are, because I added some code to the example in the Help file specifically to cover that case. You need to check for the key no longer being pressed in the function before returning - look for the code after the "Wait until key is released" comment.
